Baby Girl...22 weeks!

22 weeks!!

How far along? 22 weeks and 5 days! How is it that time is flying so fast?!
Size of our little girl? She now weighs a pound and is 11 inches long! My goodness - she is growing! I've been looking forward to this point for awhile :)
Maternity Clothes?  Loving my maternity pants and especially love that we can wear jeans every day at work - what a luxury!
Weight Gain? I went to see our Midwife yesterday and stepped onto the scale.  I'm up 17 pounds so far.  Apparently, things are on track (even though this big number was surprising!).  
Stretch Marks? none so far!
Gender? A GIRL!!!
Movement? I've been feeling her a lot these days! She is awake right now and is moving and tumbling all over...I love it!  I can't wait for Claiborne to feel her move!
Sleep? Pretty good, even with traveling to Colorado this past weekend.  I did wake up with horrible leg cramps last night (burning, balled up muscles, aching).  C massaged them for me and that helped tremendously and allowed me to go back to sleep.
Food Cravings? Just a bowl of cheerios everyday after work :)
What I Miss? nothing really!
Symptoms? Belly stretches, pulls and tugs, leg cramps and my chest continuing to grow, grow, grow!
Best Moment of the Week? Hearing her heartbeat yesterday and celebrating her at a family wedding this past weekend! 23 weeks - see you Friday!


Bumpdate 21 weeks...boy or girl!?!

IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!

How far along? 21 weeks and 3 days
Size of the baby? Our sweet little girl is around 13 oz (getting closer and closer to a pound) and about 10 1/2 inches from head to toe. She is the size of a banana!
Maternity Clothes?  still wearing maternity pants and regular tops (must be long though...I can't stand a short shirt!). I'm starting to really enjoy wearing leggings and got a few great tops this weekend!
Weight Gain? I've gained around 13 lbs...but ate enough this weekend to add a few more pounds to that total (think krispy kreme for breakfast and pizza for dinner!).  I feel like all my weight is going to my face - ahhh!
Stretch Marks? None so far! Still using my belly balm twice a day. 
Gender? It's a GIRL!!!!! We are so excited and have loved sharing the news!
Movement? I'm starting to feel her more and more each day.  On the car ride home last night she kicked/punched/squirmed so hard it made me jump! I'm loving it :)
Sleep? Actually, pretty good right now! I'm sleeping like a rock - out cold and then feel like I could sleep for hours more when I wake up for work.
Food Cravings? Nothing really! Just loving pretty much everything...
What I Miss? Really nothing! Now I just hope for a healthy baby girl :)
Symptoms? Lots of pulls and tugs in my belly and feeling her wiggle all around!
Best Moment of the Week?  LOVED our ultrasound and our gender reveal to our family! Everyone was so excited and happy and it was wonderful!!!


Bumpdate...19 weeks!

How far along? 19 weeks and 4 days. Wow! Time is flying...
Size of the baby? Our little one is the size of a mango.  He/she is about 6 inches long and 8.5 ounces (over half a pound, baby!)
Maternity Clothes?  Maternity pants are so much more comfortable.  I'm pretty miserable in regular pants - even with the bellaband.  Tops are still regular except for 2 t-shirts that are maternity and extra long, which I love!
Weight Gain? I am up 10 pounds - it's creeping up!!!
Stretch Marks? None yet!
Gender? We'll find out next Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!
Movement? I felt the first flutters on Saturday and confirmed that it was the baby (and not some other weird body thing) on Sunday.  It feels like a little goldfish in my belly with some sharper feelings every now and then.  C and I are both loving it!!
Sleep? Actually, pretty good!
Food Cravings? Nothing really.  With school back in action, I've been eating a lot of PB&J :)
What I Miss? Nothing - I just want a healthy baby!
Symptoms? My belly is just feeling like it's stretching and growing big time - constantly pulling! My headaches have gotten much, much better. Phewf!
Best Moment of the Week? Feeling those first movements.  It was so special - for both of us!
